Technology Update: Your Smartphone and Your Heart

In one simple word… Amazing!

(Sorry about the 30-second commercial at the beginning. There is nothing I can do to remove that.)

I love when Dr. Topal says:

The patient of tomorrow is the biggest switch. People need to take ownership. Patients need to seize the moment and seize the data. The new medication is plugged into you. You’ve got the information that you never had before. Wouldn’t you like that information? Most patients would.

Again… Amazing!

Keep on tickin!

    Thank you Adam for sharing this clip! I hadn’t seen it. I’m big into the ‘quantified-self’ movement and believe that empowering patients with data and telecommunications technologies will be a significant way that healthcare improves and evolves in the near future. I currently track my INR, blood pressure, heart rate, and weight and feel that being able to share this information with my health-care providers helps me be pro-active in monitoring my health conditions and can help with my health safety and care.
